[23:23] <msweeney> evening, anyone?
[23:26] <icez> howdy
[23:26] Action: msweeney wants to know about balloooooons
[23:27] <jcoxon> hey msweeney
[23:27] <jcoxon> can't stay for long
[23:27] <msweeney> i'm thinking of making a small rockoon
[23:27] <jcoxon> http://www.flickr.com/photos/29158271@N00/sets/72157600201495696/
[23:27] <msweeney> i have ideas, but only want to launch from ~2kft
[23:27] <msweeney> for starters
[23:27] <jcoxon> thats what i built over the last few days
[23:28] <jcoxon> msweeney, ooo the rockoon idea
[23:28] <msweeney> what sort of balloons could I possibly use to loft a ~3kg platform without costing me the world?
[23:28] <msweeney> oooh about the parafoil
[23:28] <icez> 3kg!
[23:28] <icez> :/
[23:28] <msweeney> i'm just doing worst case
[23:29] <jcoxon> msweeney, anything more then a 1000g will do i reckon
[23:29] <msweeney> how about >1 balloon
[23:29] <jcoxon> yeah
[23:29] <msweeney> oh, I'm considering a triangular platform, one at each corner
[23:29] <msweeney> can the lift be regulated well?
[23:29] <jcoxon> but you have a problem that if one bursts then you'll get neutral boyancy
[23:29] <jcoxon> i guess if you are careful filling and get the lift weights right
[23:30] <jcoxon> right i have to go
[23:30] <jcoxon> cya guys
[23:30] jcoxon (n=jcoxon@jac208.caths.cam.ac.uk) left irc: "Leaving"
[23:30] <msweeney> thats what i figures

[23:44] <icez> hi
[23:45] phatmonkey (i=nobody@81.2.121.150) left irc: "Ex-Chat"
[23:45] <Laurenceb> I've been talking with some people from the atmospheric physics dept at oxford
[23:46] <Laurenceb> they're interested in getting some useful metrological data off ultrahab
[23:47] <Laurenceb> I've been investigating long duration balloons
[23:48] <Laurenceb> using superpressure, IR or zero pressure
